Midstream Business Magazine - June 2019

As Joseph Markman, senior editor at Hart Energy, notes both the output from the big plays and the number of pipelines taking it away are increasing. The next step is what a slew of recent projects are intended to do: get hydrocarbons to demand centers—in both the gas-hungry U.S. Northeast and growing markets overseas. This issue of Midstream Business takes a deep dive into demand and highlights midstream's major players.

  • Government rules stipulate obligations and costs for information on differing crude oil streams.
  • Integrated, third-party systems can add tax-figuring capabilities to SAP’s upgrade.
